Track Name: Chips and cheese
I spent all the money I had in my pocket
I guess nobody else could stop this
The way I felt about you was illuminating and and oh so true
But I wanted something I couldn't have
And I wanted it oh so bad
there is nothing I wouldn't do
Oh yeah there is nothing I wouldn't do
So tell why I got into a mess
Trying to pay off all of your debts
When I barely knew you
Yeah I barely knew you

Cos you took me on the date of my life
You bought me chips and cheese at the end of the night
You took me dancing and to see a movie
I couldn't fault you
You did everything right
You took me everywhere I desired
You gave me things that set my heart on fire
I couldn't have asked for anything more
Cos you took me on the date of my life

Chips and cheese and a little bit of love
Chips and cheese and a little bit of love
Chips and cheese and a little bit of love
Chips and cheese and a little bit of love

what was the thing you wanted the most?
It was always your proudest boast
that you could have anyone you wanted
until you came along I was a lost cause
But it doesn't mean what you think it does
It just means it was love at first sight
But after a while I went love blind
Oh I went love blind

Cos you took me on the date of my life
You bought me chips and cheese at the end of the night
You took me dancing and to see a movie
I couldn't fault you
You did everything right
You took me everywhere I desired
You gave me things that set my heart on fire
I couldn't have asked for anything more
Cos you took me on the date of my life
Cos you took me on the date of my life
Cos you took me on the date of my life
Track Name: Abyss
How do you survive when you are living in the shadow of
the constant sorrow?
How do you start again when you've made so much big mistakes
they reign over you?
And how to do learn to live with the bitter disappointment and the burn
when you've got no where left to turn to?
And how do you learn to love again when all trust has been taken away, from you?

Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels like this?
Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels the abyss?

We are all the walking wounded trying to hide our bruises
but we cannot just forget
Even in our brightest day there is always a little pain
that lingers on

Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels like this?
Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels the abyss?
Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels like this?
Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels the abyss?


Feels the abyss
Do you feel the abyss?
I can feel the abyss
Can you feel the abyss?

Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels like this?
Reach out
Reach out
Is there anybody else that feels the abyss?
Track Name: Everybody told me
I wanted love, I didn't care what it cost
For me it was love at first sight
I just got lost in those big blue eyes
Oh how I long for that amazing smile
And I know those are crocodile tears that you cry
But I just can't help myself

But everybody told me

Everybody told me that I would be sorry
Everybody told me

Everybody warned me that you would break my heart
I just resigned to that fact cos I wanted your love that bad
Yeah I wanted your love that bad
Yeah I wanted your love that bad

everybody told me

That you were a player
Everybody told me

Oh what to do when it goes that far

Track Name: I Don't Want to Love You
I don't wanna know you
I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love
I don't wanna know you
Cos I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love

So you want an explanation
So you want to know my reasons
So you need an answer now
As to why I rejected you
Why I don't want to be friends
Why I don't want you around
Well it is really quite straightforward
I just don't wanna fall in love
I just don't wanna be in love

I don't wanna know you
Cos I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love
I don't wanna know you
Cos I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love

It's no great mystery
I feel your kiss would enchant me
And I'd forever be under your spell
So I'm breaking the habit and taking no chances
I'm going to great lengths to protect myself


I don't wanna know you
Cos I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love
I don't wanna know you
Cos I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love

I'll leave you patrolling the parameters of my soul
But I won't ever let you get close
Cos I've been burned before and I am sure
that I won't get burned a second time

I don't wanna know you
Cos I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love
I don't wanna know you
Cos I don't wanna love you
I don't want to be in love
Track Name: Losing You
I never have the words
right words to say
to make things better
to explain
I never have the time
time to spend with you
life stands in my way
it's all work and no play
I never had the strength
to just say how I really felt
Your tears were wasted on me
As they roll down your cheek

Oh I know I'm losing you
Oh yeah I know that I'm losing you
oh I know I'm losing you

I never had the warmth
the warmth I need
I stood on the outside
dreaming of you and me
I never stood a chance
a chance to make you mine
I couldn't negotiate
even though you were the prize
so I learned to be content
content on my own
But I loved you so much
I wish things were different

Oh I know I'm losing you
Oh yeah I know that I'm losing you
oh I know I'm losing you
oh I know I'm losing you
Oh yeah I know I'm losing you
Track Name: The Prettiest Creature
All I know is I'm looking forward to seeing you again
I'll be waiting at the station for you coming in
It's been a long time I've thought about you
every single day we've been parted
I'd almost forgotten how gorgeous you are

you are the prettiest creature I've ever seen
you are the sweetest vision I'll ever see
you are the prettiest creature I've ever seen
you are the sweetest vision I'll ever see

I don't wanna be without those cherry sweet kisses
and the way you wake me with those kisses
I can't live without that voice, soft like velvet
on my ears, and that smile that illuminates
suffocating all my fears

oh you are the prettiest creature I've ever seen
you are the sweetest vision I'll ever see
you are the prettiest creature I've ever seen
you are the sweetest vision I'll ever see

I don't know how I could live without your attention
I wanna have the monopoly on your affection
the way you make me feel is so sublime
You make me feel alive
I'm trying to take it one day at a time
so please don't rush me please

you are the prettiest creature I've ever seen
you are the sweetest vision I'll ever see
you are the prettiest creature I've ever seen
you are the sweetest vision I'll ever see
Track Name: A Fumble in the Dark
I want love
I want loving
Don't burden me with complications
Ain't no difficulties just trying
to make it clear where we stand
Ain't no desire for tying down
Ain't no time for love ties
what you need is a little love
I can give you that tonight

Turn the lights down low
turn the music up high
let me love you tonight
Turn the lights down low
turn the music up high
let me love you tonight

A fumble in the dark won't break your heart
it'll make you feel alive
A fumble in the dark won't break your heart
it'll make you feel alive

Am I giving out mixed signals?
I suppose I like you more than I let on
But you gotta understand where I'm coming from
Love can cause so much pain if it's done wrong
So consider this an audition
I want you to show me what you got

Turn the lights down low
turn the music up high
let me love you tonight
Turn the lights down low
turn the music up high
let me love you tonight

A fumble in the dark won't break your heart
it'll make you feel alive
A fumble in the dark won't break your heart
it'll make you feel alive

Turn the lights down low
turn the music up high
let me love you tonight
Turn the lights down low
turn the music up high
let me love you tonight

A fumble in the dark won't break your heart
it'll make you feel alive
Track Name: Piece by Piece
I felt myself come tumbling down
So this is how rock bottom feels
I must confess I let myself down
Cos piece by piece you de-assembled me
Well the long and short of it is
that we weren't meant to be
You used your words as weapons
and you destroyed me
so it's a new start for me
I need a clean slate
Did I try so hard for you that I got lost on the way?

Piece by piece I will build myself up from the foundations again
Brick by brick I will set myself up to never be taken down again
Piece by piece I will build myself up from the foundations again
Brick by brick I will set myself up to never be taken down again

Ain't no easy way
I have to try start again
Piece by piece I will build a new me
Such hostility and affliction
It's not for me
I want somebody who will love me
Not tear me apart piece by piece
So I'm gonna make myself my number one priority
oh I'm gonna make myself my number one priority
My number one priority

Piece by piece I will build myself up from the foundations again
Brick by brick I will set myself up to never be taken down again
Piece by piece I will build myself up from the foundations again
Brick by brick I will set myself up to never be taken down again
Track Name: Didn't mean to break your heart
Didn't mean to break your heart
Didn't think I could for a start
Didn't think you meant those I love yous
They always sounded just like strategy
Didn't mean to make you cry
To be honest I felt you were never mine
Guess it ain't what it looked like
Cos it was me that took you for a ride

Didn't mean to break your heart
Thought I had thought of everything
But the one thing I didn't expect
was that you could love me back

Didn't mean to break your heart
Didn't think I could for a start
Didn't think you meant those I love yous
They always sounded just like strategy
Didn't mean to make you cry
To be honest I felt you were never mine
Guess it ain't what it looked like
Cos it was me that took you for a ride

It was me that took you for a ride
It was me that took you for a ride

Didn't mean to break your heart
Never thought I could be so cruel
But I hold my hands up high
I surrender for what I did to you

Didn't mean to break your heart
Didn't think I could for a start
Didn't think you meant those I love yous
They always sounded just like strategy
Didn't mean to make you cry
To be honest I felt you were never mine
Guess it ain't what it looked like
Cos it was me that took you for a ride
Track Name: Dodge the Bullet
I've been trying real hard to impress you
But all I seem to do is set myself up for a fall
I set myself up for a fall every time I open my mouth
I've been trying to get you to be my baby so long
that I've forgotten how it feels to play nice
Love me or hate me take me or leave me it's alright
Love me or hate me take me or leave me it's alright
Don't judge me but if you think you're above me
that's just fine
That's alright
That's alright

Baby I am dodging bullets just to be with you
Don't you see what you are doing to me?
Baby I am dodging bullets just to be with you
Why do you do this to me?

I've been trying to dodge a bullet ever since we met
But I know it's got my name on it
I'm under no delusions I know what I'm getting into
I know the risks and I know the price too


Baby I am dodging bullets just to be with you
Don't you see what you are doing to me?
Baby I am dodging bullets just to be with you
Why do you do this to me?
Track Name: Pure Pleasure
All the lights flicker and the music explodes on
Feelings can be so limiting
Don't you wish you were free from them?
Free not to feel any pain just pure pleasure
What is your poison? It's now or never
Love me tonight like I am the right one

Baby I know that I'm losing you
But I just wanna feel pleasure tonight
Baby I know that I am losing you
But I just wanna make you mine tonight

Feel the electricity feel the thunder of this passion
Wear no disguise, show me the real you
Love me like this is your last night
live, feel so alive, let the music drive you
oh let the music consume you

Baby I know that I'm losing you
But I just wanna feel pleasure tonight
Baby I know that I am losing you
But I just wanna make you mine tonight
Let me show you pure pleasure
